There was a pretty good study done on this specific question done here. Also, it's important to note that Apple's stated battery life is based upon very light workload tests. http://www.anandtech.com/show/7113/2013-macbook-air-core-i5-4250u-vs-core-i7-4650u/4 Key take aways Idle/light workload battery time is nearly the same Medium and heavy workloads ...

Not a real answer, but a fair comparison... I have a 10-year old iPod [iPod photo, I think] that lives in my car glove-box, hooked up to power & connectivity on my car audio system.

Everytime we unplug the power, Mac will start to discharge the battery. In this manner, the battery lifespan will shorten. I think the answer would be to leave the charger on, whenever possible, as the charger actually stop charging the battery once it is full. Check this on your Mac: click on Apple Icon > About this Mac > System Report > Power See the ...

Might be the Apple Remote app. After the last update, I started having problems with phone staying hot and battery life draining rapidly. The Remote app had turned itself on to "stay connected". I think the phone was constantly trying to sync with my home computer. After shutting off the app, phone immediately started cooling off. Took three days to figure ...
